Rep. McCarty Discusses Seizure Safe School Legislation

Posted on March 9, 2023


Rep. Kathleen McCarty recently met with students, concerned educators and parents regarding Seizure Safe School legislation.   As a former educator, and current Ranking member of the legislature’s Education Committee, Rep. McCarty is concerned with all aspects of our education system, especially the safety of all students.

Nationally, Seizure Safe Schools legislation generally mandates school personnel complete seizure recognition and first aid training, require students with epilepsy to have a Seizure Action Plan on file, and/or require administration of Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved treatments in the school setting (the laws vary by state).
